I play Assassin's Creed, throwing money is perfectly fine >:(

Are there any tips for distinguishing the other uses of "caithim"? It's probably going to be pretty obvious when it means 'I spend'. But wearing and throwing might not always be so obvious—my kids throw clothes all the time:-)

Context will be your best guide. Of course, in the case of an isolated sentence, context might not be evident.

Is "I throw my money" technically correct? Even if it might not make a lot of sense, shouldn't it still be an accepted answer then?
